THANK YOU, Tess, at Magpie Tales...
PASS THE BUCK
According to Wikipedia, "Novus Ordo Seclorum", words lettered on each dollar bill in Latin, translates into "New Order of the Ages". Every day this legal tender slips through our hands, through our notice, with poetry.
From the fourth Eclogue of Virgil, (IV:5)
Now comes the final era of the Sibyl's song;
The great order of the ages is born afresh.
And now justice returns, honored rules return;
Now a new lineage is sent down from high heaven.
What you get for a dollar....still possible?

A lovely Lady Magpie, dedicated to Tess Kincaid, sent to me because of my affinity for the Prompts, by Dori Hartley, a blogger for Huffington Post. Who happens to be my daughter. Thanks, Dori...
